Brief Answer:
Nicotine will NOT increase blood uric acid levels.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can certainly understand your concern.

Chewing nicotine does not increase plasma uric acid levels.

Paradoxically in few research cases, Nicotine has been known to reduce the plasma uric acid levels.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.
